6/8/08 - Washington - Sunny Ridge Road off Rte.109 - Potters' Farm -  SAFFRON 
FINCH feeding on ground in remains of farm yard, near buildings still  
standing;  seemed rather tame, presume escaped.  Bright yellow with  yellow-orange 
crown, beady black eye, fat finch/seedeater beak, wings and back  slightly 
greenish, unstreaked breast.  Larger than a song sparrow -  not remotely like 
female Scarlet Tanager.  Cynthia took photos.   Angela had seen before in 
Caribbean and immediately ID'd but made  notes.
